London Eisenbeis death: Family lawsuit against Zehnder Splash Village
London Eisenbeis death update – Her grieving family has filed a lawsuit against Zehnder’s Splash Village, more than a year after their 10 year old daughter died from a cardiac arrest after going down the Michigan water slide.
London Eisenbeis death happened suddenly in February 2018 on the 273-foot slide, the biggest one at Zehnder’s Splash Village in Frankenmuth.
10 year old London Eisenbeis went into cardiac arrest because she was so excited to finally get on the ride.
According to her mother Tina, London was ecstatic that she was finally tall enough to get on the ride — but that excitement proved deadly when it threw her heart into an abnormal rhythm and sent her into cardiac arrest.
After London’s death, her family learned that she had suffered from Long QT syndrome, which causes fast, chaotic heartbeats and can lead to sudden death, reports SunUK.
Tina told the Sun:
“London looked at her dad, gave two thumbs up and smiled, went down the slide and came out in cardiac arrest. The excitement threw her rhythm.”
“The slide she went down has a heartbeat sound at the top that my husband said made it even scarier.
Who would have ever thought she would come out the bottom without one?”
Riders of the slide step into a small pink capsule before a voice counts down, “Three, two, one!” and the floor gives way — plunging them nearly 300 feet down the tube.
Tina initially thought a group of kids were messing around when she heard a whistle go off moments after London went into cardiac arrest.
But before long, she realized what had happened.
“It was an awful thing. There were no signs of the condition, she just dropped.
The day before, she had been doing flips in the air.”
London was hospitalized after she suffered severe brain damage due to a lack of oxygen. She was placed on life support but over a week later, the talented gymnast couldn’t fight any longer. She died.
According to the lawsuit, Zehnder’s and Splash Village was negligent in its handling of the situation after London went into cardiac arrest. WNem.com reports that the lawsuit also claims that the employees were not properly trained in CPR.
In an answer, however, filed by Zehnder’s, the company denied the claim and many others stating its employees were all properly trained and employed all available and appropriate methods to help London.
May her soul rest in perfect peace.
